Mid-Autumn Festival in Japan
日本

The Mid-Autumn Festival is named Tsukimi (月見) or Otsukimi (literally means moon-viewing) in Japan. Celebrations of the festival take place on the 15th day of the eight month of the traditional Japanese Lunisor calendar (usually takes place in September of the solar calendar)

The Tsukimi custom or moon-viewing custom originated from the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. Custom of viewing the moon and holding festival parties appeared over 1000 years ago when tradition of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival was introduced to Japan.

Unlike the Chinese, who eat mooncakes to celebrate the festival, the Japanese usually eat eating rice dumplings called Tsukimi dango. The tradition is now so popular in Japan that some people repeat the activities for several evenings following the appearance of the full moon during the eighth lunisolar month.

Mid-Autumn Festival in Vietnam

The main celebration is displaying flower lanterns. During the festival, there are flower lanterns displays across the country. Competitions of flower lanterns design are held and the winner will be rewarded. In some places lion dances are arranged in the evenings of 14th and 15th of the eighth month. The dances are performed by both non-professional children group and trained professional groups. Lion dance groups go to houses asking for permission to perform for them. If accepted by the host, they will perform as a wish of luck and good fortune. The host gives back lucky money in return.

Unlike the Chinese mooncakes in round shape, mooncakes in Vietnam are typically square.

Mid-Autumn Festival in Singapore
新加坡

As a country with most of the people being the Chinese, Singapore has long been the place where the Mid-Autumn Day is attached importance to. It is the time for them to greet each other and express their gratitude. As friends, relatives or business partners, they send moon cakes to each other to express their gracious greetings and good wishes.


Singapore is a tourist country. Mid-Autumn Day is a good chance to attract tourists. Whenever the Mid-Autumn Day is approaching, the renowned tourist areas including Wujie Road, Singapore Riverside, the Chinatown and the Chinese Garden are redecorated gaily. When the night falls gradually, the red lanterns come on, lightening the streets and lanes and filling them with the celebratory and festival atmosphere.

A giant dragon lantern was erected on the Singapore Riverside to celebrate the festival last year. The giant lantern, which was 300 meters (990 feet) long and 4.5 meters (14.85 feet) high, costed 70,000 USD. When the night came, the whole giant dragon lantern shined, tinting the river aglow. What a tremendous spectacle! In the China Town, there was not only the jumbo lanterns imported from the countries including Nepal and Vietnam, but also 44 little delicate dragons composed by 1,364 small red lanterns. All of them made the China Town even more attractive. A large-scaled dreamlike fancy lantern carnival was held at the Imperial Garden, a landscape garden with the style of the ancient Chinese garden. The popular Disney lanterns as well as the giant lanterns in the shapes of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing and the dragon particularly caught people's attention.
